Schneider Optics 138mm Water White +3 Split-Field Diopter Lens (Close-up Filter)

Questions about this product?
Schneider Optics 138mm Split-Field Diopters +3 are used to increase the minimum working distance enabling closer focus from a greater working distance on half of the frame. These special diopters differ from traditional diopters because the single diopter element is precision cut in half and mounted in the ring. The result is half the image is magnified and the other half is untouched. Split Diopters are perfect for scenes where half the frame requires close focus and the other half requires distance focus while keeping all points in-between sharp.

Schneider Optics 138mm Split-Field Diopters +3 allows more of the scene to be in total focus simultaneously and are often used to increase depth of field in pictures shot with anamorphic lenses. These filters produce a shot with deep focus, where objects near and far into focus.

Since split focus diopters are half convex glass, when attached to your camera's lens, it makes one side nearsighted, and the other farsighted. What this allows you to do is focus on multiple planes -- you could have objects in the foreground and background completely in focus. This also means that the staging of your scene must be well-prepared.
